Terrible Flooding in East Memphis!
With so much attention focused on the Mississippi River, I'm rather surprised that so few people are paying attention to the flooded parts of East Memphis.
This view, taken yesterday, shows Colonial Road, looking north towards Park Avenue. As you can see, the desperate residents of the area are forced to use their elaborately decorated fishing boats to get back and forth to the grocery store.
The large building in the distance, with the large domes, is believed to be Holy Rosary Catholic Church. Target is just out of view beyond the trees in the background.
